Born from a desire to make a pure 29er 5" travel trail bike that rails turns and maintains the agility of it's 26 inch counterpart, the SB-95 is a true head turner. Utilizing the same Switch Technology found on the SB-66 to create a head scratching combination of crisp pedaling and efficient bump absorption, the SB-95 also solves most of the problems inherent in other 29er full suspension designs...namely long chain stays, poor tyre clearance and tall top tubes.
The Switch's suspension design and unique wheel path allows for shorter chain stays and loads of tyre clearance. Similarly the compact assembly of the Switch mechanism permits a low slung top tube and stand over clearance.
And the beauty of the SB-95 is that all the positive attributes of the 29er are perfectly maintained, even amplified. You'll carry speed over potholes, hold your momentum through the rough stuff and maintain traction on loose terrain. It feels like a 3" bike going uphill and a 6" bike coming back down.
Designed with a whole host of standard features, the SB-95 won't leave you wanting for upgrades.
